Does Not Reply Back
After countless calls emails and text messages still no reply from [Name Removed]. If you buy a car from him make sure you see it in person and get a mechanic to look at it. [Name Removed] sells cars he knows nothing about as he said in my first and only call with him He is no mechanic but is happy to make misleading listings of his cars. The only reason I am writing this is to make sure he dose not rip anyone else off. Hope this saves someone .???????
Be ware of Bernie smith
This guy is so dodgy his ad said ready to enjoy it cost me $20k just to get it roadworthy the car I paid $41k for a car only worth $45 in top condition had to spend $20k on it just to get it roadworthy and still needs another $10k to replace a rusted floor this man is the ultimate second-hand car salesman of unsafe vehicles

Bernie Smith is the best.
I have been sourcing my vehicles from Bernie for ten years at least . Great value, great service and a true gentleman and man of his word.
Bernie Smith IS a rogue
I bought a $200000 corvette stingray from him and supposedly ground up resto with all new drive train, brakes and panels,
See below description that the car drives very well and hard to find a better car.
Burnt wiring exposed positives that killed a brand new battery and could catch fire. No rear suspension bushes at all meaning the car is un-drivable ,brake leaking on all 4 corners, every universal joint needs replacing and there are 8 of them. The diff was completely loose with 1 bolt completely missing, all suspension old and needs rebuildin...
Excellent experience dealing with Bernie smith cars
Excellent experience dealing with Bernie smith cars I was very impressed with the way he treated my family very informative not pushy and the place he very well presented not your average car dealer .
awsome car better than described
orange 71 camaro been looking for 5 years hard to find a good one that hasnt been over done Berni was great to deal with and didnt over describe it just let the car sell itself
Very satisfied customer
Could not be any happier with the car and service l received from Berrnie he honoured everything thing he told me he would do when l drove my pride and joy home. Berrnie let me take the car home allowed me to get my own roadworthy and as he said to me he would pay for anything needed to roadworthy the car all l had to pay for Was the certificate as we agreed My car has been everything Berrnie said it was and l couldn’t thank him enough for his honesty and help for me to get my dream car thanks Bernie. Kind regards Steve and his 66 mustang Warrnambool Vic.
I go lucky, but knew when buying its 50yr old car(s).
I brought November 2018, 2 utes 71 308 HQ, and 78 HZ GTS (genuine throughout), 5ltr Fuel Injected Chev both $30,000. I checked for bog, couldn't find any. No bog in bodies when arrived in WA, both body's museum quality. Got offered $50,000 in 3 weeks for HZ, maybe original Sandman (thanks Bernie) everything matches but still worth $50,000+ if not, $80,000 if original Sandman, the 71 308 HQ, yeah spent $5000 since arriving in WA, steering rod rooted, clutch plate rooted, new exhaust, brakes, but I didnt buy a 71 (50yr old) car expecting to spen...d nothing, am seeing them sell for $40,000+ 15 months later ((HQ Tray back Street Cars going for $50-$80,000). I am lucky guy, lucky buys, but I looked over them and I know F all about cars, and I give Bernie 5 stars, but I know its hit and miss buying 50yr old cars with any dealer, or private sale. Dont buy if you dont understand that. Thanks Bernie, mine was and still is a great buy x 2, and x 2 profitable vintage car buying experience.
I had the best customer experience when purchasing one of the cars that Bernie had in fact he was very reputable there were a few AFL players even walking around in his office there was even a wall of celebrities and memorabilia signed personally as a thank you for allowing them to purchase the cars it is most definitely worth a look as it’s one of a kind and by far the best in Melbourne as a side note he is a bit of character too
No mechanical inspections allowed just a walk around inspection thank you for making me buy elsewhere.
Wanted to buy a car worth $39,000 + from Bernie Smith Cars Tullamarine Victoria , asked if I could get the car inspected by my contracted mechanic. Told by the dealer mechanical inspection welcome come in and "use our hoist to inspect if you want " , mechanic try's to book a time to mechanically inspect the car .
Mechanical inspection refused by dealer ," you can do a walk around of the car only "
So would you buy a car here ? I m lucky the dealer and my inspection mechanic (who never inspected anything)saved me thousands by refusing a mec...hanical inspection. I no longer want this car and I will be buying elsewhere so make your mind up on this review I will leave my experience here for you to read I can provide details of the contracted mechanics booking purchase details for this booked inspection to anyone that would like to see it at product review.
